That was a heartbreaking chapter! Buffy was just so sad and desperate for clarity. She can’t admit things are clear already, she just doesn’t want to see them. And Spike, lost in the bottle again, eternally love’s bitch! This line was wonderful:
Sometimes it felt like he’d been in love with her forever, like he’d been made a vampire just so he could live long enough to find her.
So glad everyone made it back in one piece! Love that Dawn is trying so hard for Buffy and Spike to be together. You’re characterization is spot on across the board! Anya trying to read her parts in the book over Buffy’s shoulder, perfect!![Report This]
Ha, I knew it! Warren is the horrible Rugen! Perfect casting with that. Both evil, slimy little worms!!! I’m a bit confused as to why Spike is so eager to send Buffy on her way. I know he wants out of this place, but he’s acting like he hates her.[Report This]
Loved that last bit! I knew there wasn’t going to be much graphic sex in this one since the rating is “R” (I’m trying desperately not to make a pirate joke with that!!!), but having them flip through the seven pages of raunchy sex is almost as good!!
This line broke my heart!!!
He wondered what he’d done to deserve an eternity of loving women who wouldn’t love him back.
Poor Spike! We all love you here!!![Report This]
Ohh, this is so much fun! I just rewatched The Princess Bride yesterday and vaguely recalled a Spuffy fanfic that was set in the verse. I also just finished OffYourBird’s Dirty Dancing and Demons and was totally craving more movie makeovers! One search later and here I am!
It’s so good so far! I love using "Gone” and the ray gun as the premise that lands them in this movie world. Also, movie ray gun way cooler than invisibility ray gun! I want one! I’m obsessed with films!!
Casting Andrew as the narrator, perfect! And, Dawn as the kid, that interaction is going to be epic!! Can’t wait to see how Spuffy plays this out! Also, I’m thinking Warren is going to be either Humperdinck, Vizzini, or Rugen. I’m going with Rugen since he’s such an asshat! For some reason I’m seeing Jonathan as Inigo.
Very excited to continue!![Report This]
Apparently, I’ve been missing out on a totally important movie experience according to some...up until yesterday that is. AJMilone told me to go read this fic after I finished The Princess Bride, even though I’m usually not into crossovers, and I’ve got to agree with her...it’s awesome!
I loved how you followed the plot, yet made the Scoobies aware of what movie they were in and what was happening, so we got to see their reactions. Lovely twist that Spike was the only one who had never seen the movie before. And of course Andrew had to be the narrator.
Your ending back in Sunnydale was just perfect. So nice with a supportive Willow as well as Dawn. Locking Buffy out of the house to force her to go to Spike...brilliant, haha.
Thank for sharing...even though I know it’s a long time ago.
Aww I'm glad you got to experience the magic od The Princess Bride and doubly glad you enjoyed this fic! I saw the movie so many times growing up I can practically recite it from memory, and making it Spuffy was so much fun. Andrew is a delight to write haha, I'm glad you liked him. Thanks so much for reading!
Andrew looked up guiltily. “Sorry! I didn’t…they were talking about board games! It was confusing!”
Your Andrew voice is absolutely perfect, and I’m loving the interactions between Andrew and Dawn. Both of them are surprisingly innocent here and in canon.[Report This]
Buffy scowled. “I hate horses.” She let out a little shriek and clutched Wesley as one of the guards led their horse away by the reins like a child’s pony ride. Spike smirked. At least he managed to ride his own horse. Stupid poncy King.
Howling! Plus Angel as the albino 🤣[Report This]
Holy wow, I was laughing so hard this whole chapter! Thank you so much for that. This month has been the worst of my life with my mom passing unexpectedly and I haven't had much to smile about. Just wanted to let you know that your story helped me forget to be sad for a little while🙂
I'm so sorry to hear about your mom and I'm sending you all the love. I'm glad I gave you a reason to smile, thank you for the super lovely comment!
Two of my favorite things combined, I loved this so much! This might be my favorite cross-over/AU. Such a light hearted good time, with a Spuffy ending that totally fit the characters. I love Dawn so much in this!
I really enjoy writing Dawn, so thank you so much! I'm glad you liked it <3
Sorry, I was too busy reading, no, devouring your story since all the chapters were one after the other and I didn't review until the end.
Loved it. A lot.
I appreciate any comments!! Thank you so much I'm thrilled you liked it.
